This is one of
those patterns so steeped in tradition, that I approach it in almost awe, reverence, for
all the generations of families who slept snuggly under a Log Cabin. I am a sap for
history!! Certainly it is one of the most versatile of patterns, as you see all manner of
things done with it these days...rabbits...houses...etc. For me, I love the traditional
red center, and "logs" made of hand- me- downs. I urge you though, to let your
imagination go wild with your fabric choices...and whatever you
chose...it will, be GREAT!...ok...let's get on to the pattern!!
will need one Red 2-1/2" square AND and five LIGHT value
fabrics of your choice, cut in 1-1/2" widths, plus five DARK value fabrics, cut
in the same widths ...lengths of these strips will vary from 2-1/2" to 12-1/2"--to be safe, cut both lights and
darks as long as you can.
